Flavor compounds (for macaron shells) in GTA

Does anyone know where I can buy small amounts (not industrial size) of flavor compounds for macaron shells?

Here is a link to give you an idea:

    I've seen many different flavourings at Golda's Kitchen website

      Thanks Julia, I should have been more specific. I was looking for powdered compounds. Golda's is a great place; I buy most of my baking supplies from there.

        Sorry, haven't seen any powdered ones. I figured that since Golda's has very strong concentrates of flavours you wouldn't need more than a couple of drops and therefore the amount of liquid will not get increased too much, so it should work with macarons.

          I think I will give it a try. Macarons are a PITA (pain in the ***) to make ... temperamental little things!! Thanks again Julia :)

      Hi RD,

      I came across your question and would love to know if you ended up finding smaller quantities of flavor compounds for macarons. Thanks!!
